Gourd Sailboat

The hull and sail are made of gourd parts.  The hull was made with a people gourd and the sail was made from a part of a larger gourd.  The deck and various parts for holding the rudder were made of black walnut.  The pilot is a bit frustrated.  The sail and rudder are adjustable.  The length from the bow to the rudder is 14 inches.

    oh Earl – you have done it again! Great piece – and the sailor looks like he was conscripted into service and either seasick or at sea! Changed my email so hope you can get hold of me at this one listed.
    Cheers – Rita
